Advent factory on Clover Street

December 1st is almost upon us and we got the advent wreaths for a few friends and family done just in time. It is actually quite a time consuming enterprise but it does get you into the holiday spirit.

In full production :-)

Some imperfect Lindt truffles had to be eaten

Our advent wreath was the last one done

A closer look at the wreath

Another detail of the wreath

A few miniature clothespins fell victim to the feverish pace

Suppe und Salat

Gestern Abend gab es Suppe und Salat bei uns und es war sehr gut. Fuer so ein Herbst Wetter Abend gibt es wohl kaum was besseres. Well, for those of you who don't understand my native tongue, we had soup and salad for dinner last night and it was very fine and hit the spot.

Foursquare success

Who says foursquare isn't good for anything? This morning I actually unlocked the foursquare special at Whole Foods. Yes.

The reward (a $10 gift card) was promptly put to good use

The calm before the storm

As most likely expected, a diverse candy selection at our home

What people saw when they approached the house

The pumpkin really looked pretty good

Up the street from us a Krispy Kreme employee had these great treats to offer
